Crosby, Stills & Nash were literally jazzed for their performance with Wynton Marsalis’ Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra on Friday night. The venerable rock band has been performing together for over four decades, and it’s not surprising that over the years a certain rote quality might have settled in. But delivering a program called The Crosby, Stills & Nash Songbook featuring their greatest hits as newly arranged by various members of the JALC, they demonstrated a giddy enthusiasm.
On Saturday, April 13, Crosby, Stills and Nash performed a rare small-theater show (their only Los Angeles-area concert this year) at Club Nokia. The performance was part of Light Up The Blues, a benefit for Autism Speaks, one of the world's leading autism science and advocacy organizations. The evening featured many other artists as well and raised over $250,000 for the organization.
Legendary trio Crosby, Stills and Nash (CSN) makes its only Los Angeles area performance this year on April 13 at Club Nokia for the Light Up The Blues Concert — An Evening of Music to Benefit Autism Speaks, the world’s leading autism science and advocacy organization.
The Light Up the Blues concert is being spearheaded by Stills and his wife, Kristen, who have an autistic son. Stills previously has enlisted longtime cohorts David Crosby and Graham Nash for other Autism Speaks events. Tickets are $38.50 to $125, with proceeds benefiting Autism Speaks, the 8-year-old advocacy organization with offices in Los Angeles, New York and Princeton, N.J.
While many of Stephen Stills' peers and bandmates have issued memoirs recalling their misspent youth and Sixties superstardom, the 68-year-old guitarist is content to let his work speak for itself. Stills, best known for writing anthems for his generation such as "For What It's Worth" and "Love the One You're With," has issued a four-disc retrospective box set that showcases his nearly 50-year career.

Crosby, Stills & Nash (CSN), longtime advocates for campaign finance reform, have announced their support for and partnership with StampStampede, a grass roots advocacy campaign designed to "Stamp Money Out of Politics." Created by Ben & Jerry's co-founderBen Cohen, StampStampede is part of a growing national movement to pass an amendment to the U.S. Constitution affirming that corporations are not people, and money is not free speech-that, in fact, huge donations by corporations, Super Pacs, and the super wealthy drown out the voice of ordinary Americans. An amendment would pave the way for legislation limiting these contributions, and polling data has shown that roughly 80% of Americans-Republicans and Democrats alike-favor taking such action.
At 71, Graham Nash is still every inch the rock star: handsome as hell, lean with a shock of thick (albeit white) hair, comfortable in his skin and appreciative of the adulation heaped his way. This evening, he is rested, expansive, friendly and articulate as he receives Goldmine in his hotel room, excited to talk about “CSN 2012.” The two-CD and DVD package highlights performances in San Luis Obispo, Calif., proves that not only do Nash, David Crosby and Stephen Stills have the balls to tackle “Suite: Judy Blue Eyes,” “Helplessly Hoping,” “Our House,” “Teach Your Children,” Déjà Vu,” “Wooden Ships” and “Guinnevere,” but that their collective muse is still with them, as evidenced by new songs “In Your Name,” “Radio” and “Almost Gone.”
